Dread Pirate Roberts Some of it is actually pretty good. When they start adding gratuitous gears to everything, that's when I draw the line on it. Some of the more subtle stuff I like quite a bit.
SteamPoweredKleenex Like any other art form that involves putting things together, you're going to get a lot of drek until they start having some kind of skills test before one is allowed to patronize the craft store.

Binro the Heretic Stop tacking the word "punk" onto every God-damned thing. Cyberpunk, steampunk, fucking DIESELPUNK? What in Hell constitutes dieselpunk?

There's been a lot of cyberpunk fiction; renegades and radicals using computer technology against the establishment. I've yet to see any true steampunk. All the stories that bill themselves as such are either alternative history or Victorian-themed fantasy. All the protagonists are part of the system or at least mainstream society.
